Format FAT16 to FAT32 in OsX

I was looking for this for some hours, so I just wanted to share:

  1. Open Disk Utility (Cmd + Space , if you type that in Sportlight, it will come up)
  2. Select the device and Unmount, not eject
  3. Select the device again and click on Info
  4. Copy the disk id. It should be something like "disk2s1"
  5. Go to the terminal (use spotlight again)
  6. Write:

sudo newfs_msdos -F 32 /dev/[the disk id here]

You are done, you should be able to copy and paste in OsX.
